in July 2015 to switch the lighting systems in all its buildings, and particularly in its aircraft maintenance hangar, to energy ef cient standards. The goal is use the latest LED technology to reduce energy consumption by about 60 to 70 percent. LEED quality seal LSG Sky Chefs also works on systemati- cally lowering the energy consumption in the context of new constructions and modernizations of existing buildings. Its latest example is a facility inaugurated in December 2015 in Chicago. The airline catering building was constructed in accordance with LEED standards (Leader- ship in Energy and Environmental Design) and is the rst worldwide to receive the quality seal developed in 2000 by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED makes it possible to comprehensively evalu- ate a building over its entire life cycle, in- cluding its energy and water consumption. On April 26, 2016, Munich Airport and Deutsche Lufthansa AG inaugurated the “Green Satellite”. The new satellite terminal building sets new standards with regard to sustainability and energy ef ciency. Com- pared with the existing Terminals 1 and 2, it emits up to 40 percent less CO2. Other measures favoring lower emissions include the use of displacement ventilation tech- nology for climatization as well as LED lighting and the dimming of lighting levels. Conservation Regulations (EnEV) Currently under construction, Lufthansa Technik’s new wheels and brakes work- shop in Frankfurt is to start operations at the beginning of 2017. By implementing the most modern facilities engineering, the new 14,500 square meter building will fall 30 percent below the requirements of the Energy Conservation Regulations. More- over, Lufthansa Technik launched a project and modernization The Lufthansa Group’s strategic environ- mental program gives a high priority to ecological ways of constructing new facili- ties and modernizing existing ones. In doing so, the Group always applies the latest standards. An example for this approach is the Lufthansa Aviation Center (LAC) in Frankfurt, which was designed as a low-energy building. Given the EU’s Green Building Award in 2009 for its exem- plary energy ef ciency, the LAC avoids about 1,200 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year. To mark the LAC’s tenth anniversary in 2016, the Lufthansa Group participated through the impressive illumination of its headquarters in the “Luminale” for the rst time and thus directed the visitors’ attention to the topic of sustainability. The Lufthansa Aviation Center at Frankfurt Airport received the EU’s “Green Building” award in 2009 for its exemplary energy ef ciency.
